iskWATER (Documentary movie)
By Nash H. Anggahan

Nash H. Anggahan is proud PUP Student with great skills and knowledge. Aside from having these two components of being a great individual, this talented artist also has the heart to let the public be aware of the society’s different issues through his work of art. With perseverance and dedication he has come up with a documentary masterpiece he entitled iskWATER. This documentary won the grand prize in the South East Asian Documentary Award as part of the Science Film Festival 2010 held in Bangkok, Thailand-making us not only PUPians but also all the Pinoys very proud. The said documentary is solely directed, written and shot by Mr. Nash Anggahan himself.

The documentary iskWATER is a film showing the lives of informal settlers alongside the Pasig River. These informal settlers came from different provinces that came here in Manila with the hope of having a better life. The documentary also showed how people living under the bridges in the Pasig River make income out of garbage they get from the River. The documentary also depicts how much Pasig River is polluted. It also tackles about the feelings and opinions of people living alongside river; about their relocation, the experts view on them and the actions the government is implementing in order to address the problem of Pasig River’s ‘inhabitants’. Watching the documentary produced by Mr. Nash Angghan truly amazed me. First, I was amazed by the quality of the video. It is very easy to watch because of its high resolution shot or as Mr. Anggahan would say, it is in HD (high definition). Second, I was surprised to know that the documentary film was solely made by him! He said that he was the one who shot the documentary, the editor, and the scriptwriter. I felt really proud knowing that he represented our country and won grand prize at an

His light verse even earned him a place on a postage stamp. His poems contain uneven lines that all rhyme, and he even made up spellings to words to achieve the best effect. Frederick Ogden Nash was born August 19, 1902, in New York. His family thought that education was very important, and this was the basis for his love of languages…
